CauseWhen a Dashboard or a View reaches a certain level of complexity, Tableau Server automatically renders the view "server-side" and then sends screenshots of the rendered view to the browser. Such screenshots are actually PNG images of the views that have been rendered by Tableau Server. If the images are blocked on your network, then the browser not receiving the images will show a placeholder instead.
